CA Service Virtualization /CA Application Test/ CA Application Insight r8.4


We are pleased to announce that the DevTest 8.4 including CA Service Virtualization, CA Application Test and CA Continuous Application Insight.  8.4 is generally available (GA) as of September 3, 2015.  This release includes both fixes to reported issues as well as enhancements to our 3 core products based on customer feedback and ideas.


Here is a list of the notable enhancements in this release:

CA Continuous Application Insight

  • Agent grouping and actions Makes it easier for deployments with multiple agents to configure and manage settings for agents.
  • Invoke and Verify of Database calls now support dynamic data passed between steps and into the database validation statements.  These functional tests are parameterized and dynamic so changes in data do not cause false failures when running functional regression testing.
  • Common API discovery is now done when multiple agents are calling the same API’s.  This new data mining allows commonly called API’s to be tagged so that virtual services from multiple consumers perspectives can be generated or API tests generate represent multiple consumers contracts.


CA Service Virtualization

  • Search Enhancements: When searching within a service image, you can now filter the search results by area (request/response/etc.), use REGex controls, perform whole word search and match case for case sensitive text.

Enterprise Common Components

  • Access Control Enhancements including support for configuration of multiple authentication providers and automatic assigning default roles to groups of LDAP users.
  • Enhanced Manage Resources and Left Navigation of the DevTest Portal so that when you select an area on the left nav, it will open an pre-filtered tab with all the related resources. This helps you find the resource your looking for quickly, especially when there are more than 10 resources within a grouping.
